When 'Ola AH' will be Practical ?

When 'Ola AH' will be a Programming Language capable to be used Professionally ?

i think in this life, if something bad won't happen.

(i am 37 years old at moment of writing this).


speculation & more details: as soon as it's fast enough & complete, probably when compiler is done, i estimate it to be in about 15 - 20 years. by that time computers should be more powerful & code more optimal as well.

before that time interpreter will perhaps be used occasionally, but not in wide use.


Moore's Law.

'"Moore's law" is the observation that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit has doubled approximately every two years. The observation is named after Gordon E. Moore, co-founder of Intel and Fairchild Semiconductor, whose 1965 paper described a doubling every year in the number of components per integrated circuit, and projected this rate of growth would continue for at least another decade. In 1975, looking forward to the next decade, he revised the forecast to doubling every two years. His prediction proved accurate, in part because the law now is used in the semiconductor industry to guide long-term planning and to set targets for research and development. The capabilities of many digital electronic devices are strongly linked to Moore's law: quality-adjusted microprocessor prices, memory capacity, sensors and even the number and size of pixels in digital cameras. All of these are improving at roughly exponential rates.'

'Intel executive David House, who predicted that chip performance would double every 18 months (being a combination of the effect of more transistors and their being faster).'

There's also option of optimizing cpu usage at cost of memory (for example: with 'Cache') or optimizing memory usage at cost of CPU (less precomputed values, other algorithmic tricks), etc ...

There's also matter of optimizing 'Ola AH', but this should not happen prematurely as there are extra risks & costs.

  1. i think i remember correctly that part of my life, when at University i was told the same thing ... perhaps Teacher even mentioned Moore's Law, as this sounds familiar.
